When Tim Houston's second assist of Monday's game was announced, he and his teammates were busy playing out the final seconds of Central Catholic's 2-2 tie with Catholic Memorial, the No. 1-ranked team in Eastern Mass.

But after the game, Houston had more to celebrate than the impressive tie.

His assist on the Justin Kurek goal gave him 100 points for his varsity career.

"I am very excited," said Houston, a North Andover resident. "Not too many people have done it. It feels great."

Houston is believed to be the seventh player in Central Catholic history to score 100 points. Erik Antkowiak and Todd Elliott are tied for the school record with 173 points, followed by 2007 Eagle-Tribune Player of the Year and Houston's linemate of the season ago, Paul Jaskot (148). Central Catholic head coach Mike Jankowski, Al Salvia and Dean Borelli also reached the mark.

"I knew I was pretty close at the start of the season," said Houston. "I kind of lost track for a while. Now that I have got it is great. To follow in the shoes of Jaskot, one of the greatest players I have seen, and coach Jankowski."

After scoring seven goals and adding 13 assists as a sophomore, Houston broke onto the scene a year ago when he was one of the keys to their run to the Super 8. He scored 22 goals and had 30 assists. So far this year he has four goals and 15 assists.
